That's right, Hart/Norris trophy winner Chris Pronger is an Oiler. The emoticons are bouncing on the Oilfans website tonight.
The Oilers haven't seen a trade this big in a while, so take it in like a fine wine, good sirs and madames.
For him we traded our potential but never-quite-full-fledged Number 1 defenceman and soon to be UFA Eric Brewer, along with Jeff Woywitka and Doug Lynch. Good deal. Reportedly, Pronger is gonna have a 5 year deal, which makes sense since one of the biggest reasons he wanted to move on is that the Blues weren't offering anything long term. He's good grit, offensive upside, can play the point and well, it's a good deal.
I guess with all this blog/media Brewer trade talk you knew something might happen....
